Goofs

During the fight against the Somali pirates, one of the men on the helicopter has a silencer on his weapon. Given the fact that a helicopter makes far more noise than a silencer, as well as the fact that the man with the rifle is not trying to stay hidden, a silencer would be only a hindrance, since the muzzle velocity of silenced weapons is lesser than that of unsilenced ones.

Great action movie
29 November 2019 | by brianpleungSee all my reviews

Similar to American made war movie in terms of action, equipment, tactics, but more realistic showing that enemy's capabilities and good guys getting hurt and shot! Some people say it's Chinese military propaganda, I'd say it's about the same level of s**t as u see American war movies. If only bad guys die so much more often than good guys, we wouldn't have so many wars. 🤔. A good change to see heroic action movies that don't speak English!
